The Internet of Ownership is a resource for the emerging online democratic economy. Its purpose is to advance platform cooperativism—a vision for online platforms that share democratic ownership and governance among the people who rely on them, especially those who contribute their labor and personal data.

Ownership and governance

The Internet of Ownership Project Council is the umbrella governing authority for this website.

The site is hosted on Nathan Schneider’s account with May First/People Link, a “democratic membership organization.” The Directory database currently resides on Google Sheets. We manage funds on Open Collective through a fiscal sponsorship with Sarapis (United States EIN 27-1074148), of which Devin Balkind is a board member.
